1-100 This type of map is used to get from place to place using roads.

1-100A 1 - 100 What is a road map?

1-200 This map is created by placing a cone over a portion of the earth.

1-200A 1 - 100 What is a conic map?

1-300 It is the type of map projection seen here.

1-300A 1 - 100 What is a Robinson Projection?

1-400 This type of map shows changes in elevation.

1-400A 1 - 100 What is a topographic map?

1-500 It is the map projection that is most often used by airplane pilots.

1-500A 1 - 100 What is a Gnomonic projection?

2-100 1 - 100 When the slope or gradient is steep, the contour lines look like this.

2-100A 1 - 100 What is close together?

2-200 When contour lines are far apart you have this type of slope.

2-200A 1 - 100 What is a low or shallow slope?

2-300 This is the gradient between two points that are 10 km apart and have a change in elevation of 500 feet.

2-300A 1 - 100 What is 50 feet/km?

2-400 This is how energy flows between the sink and the source.

2-400A 1 - 100 What is from the source to the sink?

2-500 This is the gradient between points E and D if they are a distance of 2 km apart.

2-500A 1 - 100 What is 40m/2km = 20 m/km?

3-100 1 - 100 This is the zero degree line for latitude.

3-100A 1 - 100 What is the equator?

3-200 This is your latitude if you measure the altitude of Polaris to be 43º above the horizon.

3-200A 1 - 100 What is 43º North?

3-300 This line is 180º from the Prime Meridian.

3-300A 1 - 100 What is The International Date Line?

3-400 Traveling North along a line of longitude will make the North star do this.

3-400A 1 - 100 What is get higher in the sky?

3-500 This is what happens to the width of lines of longitude as you move from the poles towards the equator.

3-500A 1 - 100 What is increase in width?

4-100 1 - 100 This is the creator of time zones.

4-100A 1 - 100 Who is Sir Sanford Fleming?

4-200 This country is the host of the original Prime Meridian.

4-200A 1 - 100 What is France?

4-300 This number is the approximate width of each time zone in degrees.

4-300A 1 - 100 What is fifteen?

4-400 This is used to measure time zones.

4-400A 1 - 100 What are lines of longitude?

4-500 You take a 4 hour flight from California to Connecticut that leaves at 5 am. This is the time that you arrive.

4-500A 1 - 100 What is 12 noon or 12 pm?

5-100 1 - 100 This is equal on every point of a contour line.

5-100A 1 - 100 What is elevation?

5-200 The difference between any two consecutive contour lines.

5-200A 1 - 100 What is the contour interval?

5-300 The Green River is flowing in this direction

5-300A 1 - 100 What is north west?

5-400 This is what isotherms show.

5-400A 1 - 100 What are points of equal temperature?

5-500 Letter “B” is found in the middle of these types of contour lines.

5-500A 1 - 100 What are depression contours?

6-100 1 - 100 This is where you would look to see Polaris if you were on the equator.

6-100A 1 - 100 What is on the horizon in the north?

6-200 This is the best description of earth shape.

6-200A 1 - 100 What is an oblate spheroid?

6-300 This is the highest elevation of point “F”.

6-300A 1 - 100 What is 1,119 meters?

6-400 This city hosted the Prime Meridian conference in 1884.

6-400A 1 - 100 What is Washington, DC?

6-500 This was the primary cause for the creation of time zones.

6-500A 1 - 100 What are railroad schedules?

Math Problems

You measure line “A – B” to be 3.4 cm. The temperature at point “A” is 8.2ºC. The temperature at point “B” is 21.7ºC. Calculate the gradient of line “A – B” if 1 cm is equal to 3 feet. Round you answer to the nearest hundredth.

What is 1.32ºC/ft
